Le’Veon Bell on Vontaze Burfict: ‘Dude gotta go’

The battle between the Steelers and Bengals didn’t end on the field Sunday.

Pittsburgh won the game - its eighth win in the last nine meetings with Cincinnati - but it was the second play that has people talking.

Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict kicked Roosevelt Nix’s head. Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell saw the video and decided to react publicly.

Bell continues that had Nix responded, he’d be the one in trouble.

These two teams don’t like each other, and Burfict is often centered in their jarring. Expect the next meeting to be more of the same.
